Where to Go

So, by now we’re sure you have realized that Dragon Con is huge! It’s spread out over seven buildings, each a nice little maze into itself once the crowds arrive. How does one get to all of the Costuming Track events?

Glad you asked. Here are some hotel floor plans to help you navigate through the hotels and perhaps even a tip or two on how to navigate the crowds once you arrive.
